#CLRW Listener here and for this week’s Classic Rock Wednesday I’m continuing my Legends covering Legends but I’m adding a bit of a twist. It’s not uncommon for a cover to out shine the original but in this case it’s a true who sang it better. A song that has stood the test of time taking on a life and meaning of its own with every generation that has listened to it.
Sympathy for the Devil was released in 1968 with a very sorted story behinds its creation. What do you expect from the Rolling Stones? But just as colorful as they are, the band to do one of the best versions of the song are just as unpredictable.
During the height of their musical dominance, complimented by a string of chart destroying hits Guns N’ Roses lent their talents to the Interview with a Vampire soundtrack. Creating in my mind one of the greatest comparative battles of who did it better possible. Each band having its own unique sound and feel, Axel vs. Mick, or Slash vs. Keith the debate could be endless. If there is one thing I have learned in my long career it’s to avoid such traps but in my mind it all comes down to who has the better system to play it on. So have some sympathy for those around you, as they might not get it because here is your Classic Rock Wednesday.
